Size 2 Authentic Regency Dress Pink Polka Dot Empire Gown 1800s Pride and Pr
Authentic 1800s Regency dress in cotton gauze with delicate, airy lace decolletage. This rare pre-Victorian Empire gown has a broad scoop neckline, short sleeves, and a thin bodice lining of cotton muslin. Has light gathers to the columnar skirt. This dress has mostly hand-sewn seams, with apparent reinforcement to the bodice seams as they appear to be likely machine-sewn (and were simultaneously made a bit smaller at side seams and shoulder seams). Snaps were added at back bodice for the closure.
